2 Stroke Prosthetic Bunny - the action figure - part 2

Phase 2: clay build-up (continuation of my July motor bunny post)
...added some non-hardening sculpting clay to the aluminum tube and foil wire skeleton from earlier. on closer inspection, the clay does not allow for an extremely smooth finish, but good enough for a first-pass rubber mold for wax casting (i'll go into details when that phase comes along)...

also, since i took this picture, i've shortened the neck to better match the proportions of the illustration.

as you can see, the engine and wheel attachment is still in the wire-frame stage - already began sculpting it...although this takes time, as its about 86 degrees here and the clay gets pretty soft (unless i keep placing it into the fridge after every 5 minutes of handling time).
